Our biology students need all the practice they can get in how to use the Hardy-Weinberg equation and how to interpret the results of the equation. Both printable and digital versions are included. These practice problems will ensure that your students master these concepts. The Hardy-Weinberg Principle is an essential component to a unit on the evolution of populations, population genetics, and speciation.

Both printable and digital versions of this resource are included. The student handouts can be printed or used in the paperless digital format in your Google Drive, Google Classroom, Microsoft OneDrive, or similar. This resource is perfect for traditional classroom settings, 1:1 schools, or for distance learning.

What’s included in this resource?

  • Printable and Editable student worksheets consisting of 20 practice problems.
  • The problems contain multiple parts for a total of 54 questions.
  • Digital paperless version (not editable) for use in Google Drive, Google Classroom, and/or Microsoft OneDrive
  • Extensive and detailed Teacher Answer Key of 11-pages.
  • Solutions to all problems.
  • Two formats of printable student handouts: In one paper-saving format, students use their own notebook paper. The second format provides space for students to complete their work.
  • Teacher guide for Google Apps

Apply concepts of statistics and probability to support explanations that organisms with an advantageous heritable trait tend to increase in proportion to organisms lacking this trait. Emphasis is on analyzing shifts in numerical distribution of traits and using these shifts as evidence to support explanations. Assessment is limited to basic statistical and graphical analysis. Assessment does not include allele frequency calculations.
Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution primarily results from four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number, (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the environment. Emphasis is on using evidence to explain the influence each of the four factors has on number of organisms, behaviors, morphology, or physiology in terms of ability to compete for limited resources and subsequent survival of individuals and adaptation of species. Examples of evidence could include mathematical models such as simple distribution graphs and proportional reasoning. Assessment does not include other mechanisms of evolution, such as genetic drift, gene flow through migration, and co-evolution.
